Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Monday expressed his support for Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan. Shashi Tharoor has spoken of sympathizing with the people regarding the arrest of Shahrukh Khan’s son Aryan in the drugs case. Shah Rukh Khan’s sons Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Seth Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha, arrested in connection with the seizure of banned drugs from Cordelia Cruz, have been sent to NCB custody till October 7.
Shashi Tharoor tweeted about this issue and said that I am not a fan of these medicines and have never tried any. But I am disgusted by those who are writing epics on the arrest of Shahrukh Khan’s son. Tharoor said to have some sympathy, friends. He said that public glare is bad enough, there is no need to rub the face of a 23-year-old child with joy.
I am no fan of recreational drugs & haven’t ever tried any, but I am repelled by the ghoulish epicaricacy displayed by those now witch-hunting @iamsrk on his son’s arrest. Have some empathy, folks. The public glare is bad enough; no need to gladly rub a 23yr old’s face in it.
